I am out of the office until 01/09/2012.
The subject of this post is an actual auto-reply I just received. Wow, I thought I did pretty well on vacation time, but this is something. Today is November 11, 2010.
You might as well just cancel the email account. Well, no, this is better. You still “exist” but you’re actively not there. You’re actively saying that you’re not available. It’s a bit like you take the call waiting call to say you’re on the other line, but you don’t actually say anything, you just make it stop ringing, then go back to what you were doing.
This is the best auto-responder I’ve ever seen.
